Recently, G John Mullen had me on the Swimming Science Podcast. I thought it went well, but during the recording I was forced to admit that my performance at Sectionals in early March was a big let-down. I felt "off" all weekend and I couldn't really explain it. I hadn't felt bad like that since switching to the LCHF diet, and with the way my training had been since December I was expecting to rock both breaststroke events.
After the meet I went to the doctor to chat about what might be wrong. I was weak, a little achy, but nothing too strange... both of my kids had been sick so I thought I might just be fighting something... but then I started piecing together some clues that made me start down a new rabbit hole on the google.
